Darnell! If you haven't joined her blog, you've gotta jump in and join us! She's a blast, and I promise you there will be a smile on your face and a chuckle in your gut before you finish the day's blog post. She has a wonderful hampster, named Hammy, who creates right along with her and never fails to give his opinion. Darnell also has a way with acronyms, and soon your vocabulary will increase with a new list of words you'd never thought of before.
This card was created using the Split-Negative technique. I stamped the butterfly twice, once on black paper and the other on white. The butterfly on the black paper was heat embossed with white, and the one on the white was embossed with black. After cutting the butterfly in half (OUCH!), I paired up the two pieces and attached it to a piece of paper before adhering to the red background.
This wasn't an easy technique for me. I found it rather difficult to cut my image in half without squinting first. I even yelled a big OUCH while cutting. After I got through that trauma, I was able to quickly get my card together.
The paper is from Gina K Designs Berries and Vines patterned paper pack, and the butterfly is from the Gina K Designs Bold and Beautiful stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by today! I am so happy you can join in with Darnell's Birthday Celebration!
